According to blog reader Fine Boy,
Yes official armed robbers is now operating in Benin city, before the edo state election thousands of soldiers were deployed to EDO for reasons best known to the ruling party. but after the election these heavily armed soldiers still remains in edo state collecting N50 from every motorist on every main road for no reasons. if you refuse to settle them they would ask every body in the vehicle to sit on the ground. delaying everything while pretending to be checking the vehicle for harmful object.
This act has discredit the fight against corruption by the federal government. we have never experienced something like this from decade ago from soldiers in Benin, the war on corruption is lip service only happening on the media.
